Faster Than Light

2017 | Action | Science Fiction | Short Film


Amazing sci-fi film with well structured storytelling with great CGI!

Ethan Kane, a NASA Astronaut and decorated pilot, has recently retired from active duty to spend more time with his wife and young son. As he tries to adjust to a quieter life on the ground, he’s approached to fly one last mission...testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft. While the world watches, Kane takes The Longshot on its maiden voyage.

I got into film in a somewhat roundabout way. I studied music from a young age and trained as a pianist—first classically, then at Berklee College of Music...I eventually realized this wasn't the path for me and began to explore other opportunities. While working on Macs in college, I learned what was possible visually using graphics software and loved it. I started a company called Artifex Studios with the intention of taking on visual effects work.

A friend was working on The X-Files around that time, and asked if I was interested in creating some graphics for the show. It happened to be for an episode written by William Gibson and Tom Maddox called "Kill Switch" and I jumped at the chance. After this, Artifex created graphics for many shows, moving into full VFX work within a few years. We've now worked on close to one hundred different film and television projects. - Adam Stern
